Inner Journey:


“To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.”
— Samuel Butler

Many of us have been taught to believe that we are valued for what we do, not just for who we are. ‘Doing’ is important, but to keep life in balance, we also need time to just ‘be.’

Henry David Thoreau expressed this so well in Walden Pond:

“There were times when I could not afford to sacrifice the bloom of the present moment to any work, whether of the head or hand.

“Sometimes, on a summer morning, I sat in my sunny doorway from sunrise till noon, rapt in a revery, amidst the pines and hickories and sumacs, in undisturbed solitude and stillness, while the birds sang around or flitted noiseless through the house, until by the sun falling in at my west window, or the noise of some traveller’s wagon on the distant highway, I was reminded of the lapse of time.

“I grew in those seasons like corn in the night, and they were far better than any work of the hands would have been.”


A Note from the Universe

Give it thought. Consider every angle. And then speak from your heart.

You’ve not been drawn into anyone’s life by chance.

Loud and proud,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom

“Self-trust is the first secret of success”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Everyone seems to have a different definition of success. It means so many things, and each one of us relates to the word in our own way. For some, success might mean the attainment of goals. For others it might be fame or fortune. However you describe it, success, like spiritual growth, is an ongoing process. It is more a journey than a destination.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Devil

There may be very little that you can change or have much effect on today. It may not exactly feel like the day has been fated to be a certain way, but you may have that suspicion at times. You can fit in with whatever happens and get some satisfaction and success anyway. Someone who usually argues against you may turn around and agree with you about something important
